- Apr 23, '09 by bsrn0523Hi there,
I work with an infusion company here on Long Island that picks up many Bioscrip cases, mostly IVIG, some steriods and antibiotics. I have not had any issues in dealing with the company or its associated pharmacy, they were always professional and courteous. Good luck to you in your new position!
- May 3, '09 by accessqueenIn my experience the PICC class is just a small part of PICC training. You can get PICC certified on line. The real dilemma is getting precepted. The majority of companies that give PICC classes, do not precept. Don't bother getting PICC certified unless you set up a way to get precepted. There's a bazillion nurses out there who have their PICC certs, but have never put in a line.
- Sep 5, '09 by alicecenHello to all,
I agree with the last post except for a few exceptions. I run PICC Resource Associates- the company referenced here and we get calls asking about precepting all of the time. We do offer precepting for companies/facilities, and when individuals call in that are signing up on their own and would not be able to pay for this type of precepting, I make a point of telling them about other avenues to seek precepting. Home infusion companies, especially large companies like Bioscrip have nurses on their staff that are experienced in PICC insertion and often they may have this staff precept other nurses who have completed a PICC insertion class if they have a need for more PICC trained staff. I do agree that there is not much point to taking a PICC class if you have no way to get precepted after a class. We recommend clients set up precepting as soon after a class as is possible.

I am a ER nurse who is looking to work for an iv company. Can you tell me how the pay is and how about traveling. I heard some companies are better payors? Does anyone know what the insurance companies paay?
- Jun 10, '10 by jess41378I have been working w 3 diff home infusion co and I love it. They pay betw $37-40/hr or per visit rates betw $60-65 for 1 hour visits(labs, drsg change). I hope I helped. Good luck.
- Jun 14, '10 by creich rnThanks, big help.
Do they pay for transportation?
One company in Massapequa Park seems to pay more for east end cases?
Its hard to compare companies .
- Jun 15, '10 by creich rnWhat do the companies pay for IVIG? Isnt 3-4hrs of iv? I was told a visit is considered 2 hrs. This is why I cant figure out if I will make the same money.
- Jun 17, '10 by Surfer8210Quote from creich rnI have some cases that are 8 and 10 hours per visit. At $40 -$45 per hour it's not too bad for a days work.What do the companies pay for IVIG? Isnt 3-4hrs of iv? I was told a visit is considered 2 hrs. This is why I cant figure out if I will make the same money.
- Jun 17, '10 by creich rnI need to get cases like that. No traveling. I was told , in one agency, that they would pay 75$ to open a case and then subsequent visits would be $40 Hr. Does that sound about right. I think that included traveling.
